HONOR View20 has adopted a design of full screen view, which is called “HONOR FullView Display”, reaching a screen-to-body ratio around 85.7%. The under-screen cameras make the HONOR FullView Display possible, and the 48 MP Camera supports optical image stabilization function.

HONOR View20’s rear camera is the first ever on a smartphone to be powered by the SONY IMX586 stacked CMOS image sensor, which features 48 effective megapixels on a 1/2-inch sensor, delivering excellent image quality.
While on HONOR 10, the rear dual cameras offer 24MP+16MP resolution, which is much less than those on HONOR View20.
HONOR View20’s in-screen front camera is specially placed at the upper left-hand side, maximizing the viewing area of the full screen and leaving enough room for the front camera. The 25MP resolution on the front camera is also far better than the 16MP on HONOR 10.
